Hello, all. It's been a while since I've joined you, because Mother Nature hasn't done anything particularly interesting around here lately - nothing, at least, that I haven't already posted about.
Exasperated at being ignored, the bawdy Green Lady pulled out all the stops: Flashed her boobs, she did! I swear! Saw it myself.
And THEN look what happened:
That, my friends, is an icicle growing upward out of the water. In all my 60 years I have never before seen this happen.
And just like that, Mama N has recaptured my undivided attention. Can't wait to see what the hot old broad does next.
* For the more science-minded, these rare structures form when liquid water is forced upward through a central channel as the ice freezes. (More info here.) According to my research, they usually have flat sides like a prism. I was kind of disappointed in my own thingie when I found that out. I would have gotten an even bigger kick out of an ice prism.
